    Default Transitioning from 2B to 2A



    Hi all,

    I have been riding 2B bikes (Bajaj Pulsar) for more than 1 yr and have been very comfortable with my bike. I recently started Class 2A at SSDC and is having difficulty balancing. The bike is so much bigger that my centre of gravity has changed. I lost my balance a few times when negotiating at crank course or doing u-turns. I also realised that the front brake is very strong, that my bike will jerk even when depressing slightly. I often had to rely on rear brake for reducing speed.

    Is anyone having the same problem with me?

    Just completed Lesson 2. waiting for lesson 3.

    Hmm, perhaps you are very stiff when handling the bike. Try to keep yourself relax and be confident. Bigger bikes have more braking power and you Need to know how much pressure to apply when braking. Try go slower when going through the crank course or U-turn.

    super4 is very different. have to relax the handlebar
    Always ride safely and defensively.
    Repair bike cheap and fast,
    Repair body expensive and slow.

    I also went through the same thing when transitioning from riding my phantom to a super 4 in SSDC last year. Unfortunately, best advice is to keep practicing...
